Living in Boise: Trash Day

I think the thing that surprised me the most when we moved here was how the garbage wo/men will take anything. And when I say anything, I mean anything. Do you have a recliner that isn't worth putting on craigslist? No worries. Just set it on the sidewalk beside your garbage can on Tuesday. Do you have a box that your 60" TV came in? No worries. Just set it out w/ your garbage. Though I've never actually seen anyone leave an old toilet or refrigerator out, I'm sure they'd take that too.

So even though the commute to work sucks, at least the garbage wo/men make my life easier.

Wow, really? Our garbage people won't take anything if it's not in the receptacle. Would be nice if they did. Two of the garbage bins for our block are right by my garage. Ask me how many times my garage door is blocked in my somebody's crap.

I know. Isn't it great? When we lived in Cailfornia, they wouldn't even take anything if the lid on the garbage can wasn't down all the way.

I bet that makes your day when you're trying to leave.
